Inaugural IBTM Asia Pacific looks to ‘Make Every Connection Count’

The first details of the rescheduled inaugural IBTM Asia Pacific have been unveiled under the theme ‘Make Every Connection Count’.

Originally due to take place in 2020, IBTM Asia Pacific will take place from 5-6 April 2022 at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore.

The event will incorporate the Singapore MICE Forum, in partnership with the Singapore Association of Convention & Exhibition Organisers & Suppliers, which takes place on 4 April 2022 at SMF X IBTM Asia Pacific.

“Now more than ever making every connection count is critical for event professionals as together we rebuild our industry,” said IBTM Asia Pacific event manager Michael Jones.

“IBTM Asia Pacific 2022 will support the industry to do this through a programme of high-quality business meetings, education and networking that will give event professionals the opportunity to reconnect with the buyers and suppliers, as well as benefit from cutting edge education.”

International travellers can now travel to Singapore quarantine-free via Vaccinated Travel Lanes.

Poh Chi Chuan, executive director, exhibitions and conferences at Singapore Tourism Board, said the event will provide a much-needed face-to-face platform for the global MICE industry in its recovery phase.

“We look forward to working closely with IBTM to curate a series of unique local experiences for selected hosted buyers to reimagine business events in 2022 and beyond,” he said.
